CAIMS 2007 BANFF: CALL FOR MINISYMPOSIA

The CAIMS 2007 Annual Meeting in Banff will feature an opportunity for members
to contribute Minisymposia. These SIAM-style Minisymposia will consist of four
30-minute talks on a common theme of current research interest (or eight
30-minute related talks, if justified.)

In this way, you can bring together 4 strong researchers in your choice of
field, to communicate new work, possibly to collaborate, and certainly to
partake of all that CAIMS Banff has to offer. Unfortunately, CAIMS can not
provide funding for accepted Minisymposia, except of course for providing the
meeting rooms and paying all the conference overhead costs. Full details for
organizing a CAIMS Minisymposia can be found at:

http://www.math.ualberta.ca/ami/CAIMS/CAIMSminisymposium.pdf

Note that Minisymposium Proposals must be sent to Peter Lancaster
<lancaste@ucalgary.ca> by 31 October 2006.

IntErnational Symposium on Combinatorics, Algorithms, Probabilistic and
Experimental Methodologies
(ESCAPE 2007)
April 7-9, 2007, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China
http://www.math.zju.edu.cn/zgc/escape/homepage.htm

Scope

With the Internet, bio-technology, video digital data processing, as well as
global geometric data applications, the enormous dataset size has been
pushing our limits in data processing. Both theoreticians and Practitioners
are challenged to an extent that has never seen before. A growing pressure
has been put on different experts, such as Computer Scientists, Combinatorics
Experts, and Statisticians, dealing with their own large data processing
problems, to reach out beyond their own disciplines, to search for ideas,
methodologies, and tool boxes, to find better, faster and more accurate
solutions.

The international Symposium on Combinatorics, Algorithms, Probabilistic and
Experimental methodologies (ESCAPE 2007), is intended to provide an
interdisciplinary forum for researchers across their discipline boundaries to
exchange their approaches, to foster innovative ideas as well as to develop
commonly interested research agenda. The novelty of ESCAPE is to study
practical large data processing problems with different, and eventually
converging, methodologies from major important disciplines.

Program Topics

The program topics include but are not limited to:

Algebraic computation and number theory
Bioinformatics
Combinatorics and experimental design
Corpus linguistics
Financial data processing and analysis
Geometric information processing and communication
Grid computing and network resource allocation
High performance computing techniques and applications
Heuristic evaluation methodologies
Internet algorithms and protocols
Large system scheduling methodologies
Methodologies of simulation evaluation and applications
Parameterized algorithms, heuristics and analysis
Probabilistic method and randomized algorithms
Real time data processing and online algorithms
Robust optimization
Sampling techniques in data analysis

Paper Submission

All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the quality,
originality, soundness, and significance of their contributions. Application
and position papers presenting novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions
are all welcome. As proceedings all accepted papers will be published in
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) of Springer Publications (pending
approval).

Authors should submit an extended abstract. The extended abstract should start
with the title of the paper, each author's name, affiliation, and email
address, followed by a brief (one or two paragraphs) summary of the results to
be presented. This should then be followed by a technical exposition of the
main ideas and techniques used to achieve these results, including motivation
and a clear comparison with related work. The abstract should not exceed 12
single-spaced pages (including bibliography) on A4-size paper (210 mm x 297
mm) and should be in single-column format. If the authors believe that more
details are essential to substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may
include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the
program committee.

Only electronic submissions are acceptable. A detailed description of the
process is available at
http://www.math.zju.edu.cn/zgc/escape/Paper_Submission.htm.

Presentation of Accepted Papers: One author of each accepted paper will be
expected to present it at the conference.

Best Paper Prize

Of accepted papers, four will be selected by the Award Panel as finalists for
the Best Paper Award. Authors of the four selected papers will be invited (one
author of each paper is free of registration fees) to give presentations in a
special plenary session, in which the Best Paper will be identified to win the

=========================================================================

Data mining and knowledge discovery is rapidly becoming an important tool
in all walks of human endeavor including science, engineering, industrial
processes, healthcare, business, medicine and society. The datasets in
these fields are large, complex, and often noisy. Extracting knowledge
requires the use of sophisticated, high-performance and principled analysis
techniques and algorithms, based on sound statistical foundations. These
techniques in turn require powerful visualization technologies;
implementations that must be carefully tuned for performance; software
systems that are usable by scientists, engineers, and physicians as well
as researchers; and infrastructures that support them. For the main
conference the program committee seeks outstanding papers in all areas
pertaining to data mining and knowledge discovery.

This conference provides a venue for researchers who are addressing these
problems to present their work in a peer-reviewed forum. It also provides
an ideal setting for graduate students and others new to the field to learn
about cutting-edge research by hearing outstanding invited speakers and
attending tutorials (included with conference registration). A set of
focused workshops are also held on the last day of the conference. The
proceedings of the conference are published in archival form, and are also
made available on the SIAM web site.

ACNS'07 -- 5th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and Network
Security
5-8 June, 2007
Zhuhai, China

http://www.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/icsd/acns2007/

=========================================================

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: 14 December 2006
Author notification: 20 February 2007
Final version deadline: 20 March 2007

=========================================================

ACNS is an annual conference concentrating on current developments that
advance the areas of applied cryptography and its application to systems
and network security. The goal is to represent both academic research
works as well as developments in industrial and technical frontiers.

As in previous years, there will be an academic track and an industrial
track. Submissions to the academic track should emphasize research
contributions, while submissions to the industrial track may focus on
implementation and deployment of real-world systems. Submissions for the
industrial track must clearly indicate this in the title. Proceedings
for the academic track will be published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science and will be available at the conference.
Papers accepted to the industrial track will be published in a different
venue.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published
elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to
any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Plagiarism and
double submissions will be dealt with harshly.

Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be
considered for the ***BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD***; any paper co-authored
by a full-time student is eligible for this award.

General Chair:
Yongfei Han (ONETS, China)

Program Chairs:
